A robot in a class of its own

A Universal Robot from R. A. Rodriguez gives you all the advanced robotic automation with none of the traditional costs associated with robot programming, set-up and dedicated, guarded work cells. It will work in collaboration with your employees, releasing them from repetitive tasks so they can add value to your business in other ways.

Super safe

A Universal Robot will run most machine tending applications automatically, lowering your operation costs by boosting speed and enhancing process quality. And, depending on the application, many users are able to operate their Universal Robot with little or no additional safety guarding.

If the robot comes into contact with an object or person, its patented technology instantly stops the robot at minimal impact forces. The robot can also be programmed to operate in reduced mode, if someone enters its work zone and resume full speed and force when they leave.

Super flexible

As the Universal Robot can be quickly re-programmed for use with different machines, it is ideal for use where volumes, workflows and applications are frequently changing. Deploying the robot arm for any new task is quick; a teach function speeds up the process. And you can also recall programmes for recurrent tasks.

Space saving is another big plus for the Universal Robot. As Jesper Riis of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions explains, Universal Robot gave him a unique opportunity to boost productivity in minimal production space www.universal-robots.com/case-stories/trelleborg-s...

The Universal Robot can be used for inspection too. When equipped with a vision camera, it can be used for non-destructive testing and 3D measurements, further enhancing product quality.It can objectively identify and pinpoint defective or faulty parts before they are packed or shipped.

Thanks to its ability to maximise efficiency, increase quality, optimise production, improve performance and reduce costs, a Universal Robot typically pays for itself in just 195 days – the fastest in the robot industry.Want to know more?
